Inline Gear Reducer

The inline gear reducers also called axial gear reducers or axial gearboxes, come in several gearbox versions and are designed to multiply the torque and reduce the input speed to the desired output speed.

The inline gear reducers also called axial gear reducers or axial gearboxes, come in several gearbox versions and are designed to multiply the torque and reduce the input speed to the desired output speed. The main benefit of row transmissions is their ability to maintain control in high-speed applications. Their efficiency and ability to provide high input speeds with minimal backlash make speed reducer gearboxes ideal for a wide range of motion control applications.

Meet Your Power Transmission Needs with Our Built-In Gear Reducers

Some offer built-in gear reducers to meet the needs of almost any motion or power transmission application. Our inline gearboxes are designed with low backlash and precision workmanship to ensure reliable operation in even the most demanding operations. Typical applications for standard and custom inline gears include conveyor systems, food and beverage processing equipment, industrial packaging machinery, retractable seat systems, and countless other applications.

Speed ​​Reducer Gear Options

Gearboxes are known by many different names including gears, reducers, gear reducers, speed reducers, and geared motors. All terms can be used interchangeably to refer to in-line gear reducers. Our warehouse includes a wide range of gear units with an input speed of up to 4,000 rpm for high speed and precision applications.

Inline Gears

Some offer a full line of compact, lightweight planetary spur gear reducers. These inline gear reducers units can be mounted directly on the motors or combined with a shaft coupling. Ratios from 2: 1 to 625: 1 are available, with torques ranging from 0.13 Nm to 90 Nm.

  • Input speed: up to 4,000 rpm
  • Precision machined aluminum housing
  • Double ball bearings on all shafts

Low Backlash Encoder Row Gears

These compact, lightweight, low-backlash gear units were originally designed for encoder applications and are applicable to many other drive systems as well. Encoder gear reducers have a very low moment of inertia at the shaft input and are rated for input speeds up to 3,000 RPM. Gear ratios from 4.96:1 to 3600:1 are available in two frame sizes. Synchro cleats for our encoder gearboxes are available from stock.

  • Output torque: 1 oz.-inch
  • Backlash: 15 arc-minutes (at any ratio)
  • Ratios from 4.96:1 to 3600:1
  • Input speeds up to 3,000 RPM
  • Diameter: 1-1/16” or 1-3/4”
  • Black anodized aluminum housing
  • 303 stainless steel gears and shafts
  • Ball bearings

Low Backlash Inline Taper Gearboxes

Our bevel geared motors are linear planetary gears with a backlash equal to or greater than 8 arcs/minute. These in-line gear units are designed for applications where space is limited and are available as shaft input or mounted to a 24 V DC motor.

  • Low backlash: ≤8 arc/min. at the entrance
  • Compact design
  • Shaft input or with a motor mounted
  • Gear ratios from 2: 1 to 16: 1
  • Torque outputs from 1.14 Nm to 12.7 Nm

Epicyclic (Planetary) Servo Gears

Some lines of inline epicyclic servos are extremely robust and compact. These planetary gears have a fully machined aluminum or steel housing and are equipped with ball bearings. Our inline planetary gear units offer flexible motor mounting options and can deliver torque outputs up to 380 Nm. The gear ratios range from 3: 1 to 36: 1.

  • Low backlash: ≤30 arcs/min. at the entrance
  • Input speeds up to 3,000 rpm
  • Precision machined aluminum housings
  • Double ball bearings on all shafts
  • Available in ratios from 3: 1 to 36: 1
  • Output torques up to 380 Nm

Speed ​​Gears

Our low-ratio encoder gears and bevel gears can also be used as gear speed-increasing components when needed.

The advantage: unsurpassed quality in the row transmission

  • Lubricated for life
  • Input speeds up to 4,000 rpm
  • Available with gear ratios up to 3600: 1
  • Custom gearboxes available
  • Fully machined from block housings
  • Ball bearings on all shafts


Mechanical Speed Reduction Devices Used in Automation Control Systems

Speed ​​gearboxes and reducers are mechanical speed reduction devices used in automation control systems.

Speed ​​reducers are mechanical devices typically used for two purposes. The primary application is to multiply the amount of torque generated by the input power source to increase the amount of useful work. They also reduce the speed of the input power source to achieve the desired output speeds.

Gears are used to increase the torque while reducing the speed of the output shaft of the main drive (for example, the engine crankshaft). The gearbox output shaft turns slower than the input shaft, and this reduction in speed gives a mechanical advantage by increasing the torque. The gearbox can be set to do the opposite and provide an increase in shaft speed with a reduction in torque.

Closed-drive speed reducers, also known as spur gears and gearboxes, have two main configurations: in-line and bevel, which use different types of gears. Linear models are usually made of helical or spur gears, planetary gears, cycloidal mechanisms, or harmonic wave generators. Right-angle designs are typically made with worm gearing or bevel gearing, though hybrid drives are also available. The type of application dictates which speed reducer design will best satisfy the requirements.
